Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi’s Mexican Culinary Fiesta

In an unprecedented culinary collaboration, the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi, in conjunction with the esteemed Mexican gastronomic gem Naco Taco, and with the full support of the Mexican Embassy in Vietnam, is on the cusp of launching an unparalleled month-long celebration – the Mexican Culinary Fiesta.

This exclusive event promises to be a symphony of flavours, an ode to the rich culinary heritage of Mexico, all set to enthral gastronomes and culture enthusiasts alike.

A Fusion of Cultures and Culinary Expertise

Central to the Mexican Culinary Fiesta is the fusion of expertise from both worlds – Mexican and Vietnamese. At the heart of this gastronomic celebration lies the collaborative efforts of Chef Gabriela Espinosa, a luminary in the realm of Mexican culinary arts, and the talented team of chefs at Angelina, the contemporary epicurean haven found within Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi.

Drawing inspiration from the vibrant streets of Mexico and the rich tapestry of Vietnamese culinary traditions, Chef Gabriela and her counterparts at Angelina are set to craft a menu that transcends boundaries, offering patrons an unforgettable journey through the realms of taste and culture.

Accompanying the culinary extravaganza are the meticulously crafted mezcal-based cocktails, courtesy of none other than Octavio Muñoz Castillo Jauregui, Master Mezcalier and co-founder of Naco Taco.

These libations, expertly concocted by Angelina’s mixologists, serve as the perfect complement to the gastronomic offerings, elevating the dining experience to new heights. Each sip tells a story, a narrative of craftsmanship and passion, further enriching the cultural exchange between Mexico and Vietnam.

Exploring the Authentic Flavours of Mexico

The Mexican Culinary Fiesta is more than just a celebration of food; it’s a journey of discovery, an exploration of the authentic flavours and traditions that define Mexican gastronomy.

From the tantalising aroma of freshly made tortillas to the robust flavours of traditional mole sauce, each dish served at Angelina tells a story – a story of heritage, resilience, and culinary innovation.
